Farmers protest: Traffic on Mysuru-Bengaluru road affected

June 1, 2017

Ramanagaram: Traffic on the busy Mysuru-Bengaluru Highway was affected for a few minutes this morning at Ramanagaram as hundreds of farmers, braving the Police force, managed to jam the roads at the entrance to the silk town.

Hundreds of farmers, in response to ‘Vidhana Soudha Chalo’ call by farmer Associations, demanding a permanent irrigation system arid districts of Ramanagaram, Tumakuru, Chikkaballapura, Chitradurga, Kolar and Bengaluru Rural, gathered in large numbers.

However, the farmers, who came in a bike rally, were prevented by the Police from moving beyond the town.

The Police, after taking the farmers into custody, later took them to APMC Yard in Ramanagaram town.

Even as the Police were pushing the farmers into vans, traffic on the busy Highway got jammed resulting in inconvenience to the motorists for sometime.

The Police had erected a number of barricades and temporary chowkis along the Highway from Chennapatna to Bengaluru, as a precautionary measure, which also hindered traffic movement. However, the traffic movement eased once the Police took the farmers into custody and dropped them at the APMC Yard.

The farmers were led by KRRS Ramanagaram district President Lakshmanaswamy and others.
